In this swap, we’ll collaborate on handmade mixed-media postcards. Cards that you start (“starters”) will ultimately be returned to you.
This is Round 1, so you’ll need to work on the front and back of a card.
For the back: address the card to yourself and add adequate postage. Divide the area where you’d normally write a message into 3 or 4 sections. Write Art Collab PC #1 at the top of the card and note what you added (for example, background paper, washi tape, found image, paint, etc.). The remaining spaces will be filled with the same information from players in successive rounds.
For the front: Create a base. You can use watercolor, paint, collage or any other medium. Do not divide the card into sections. Each artist will add elements to the entire card. Keep embellishments flat, as finished cards need to survive USPS machines. Do not sticker-slap cards.
As you participate in future rounds, you'll add 2-3 mixed-media elements to the card you receive in a previous round. Write your swap-bot user name what what you added in the space provided on the back of the card
When you finish someone’s card in a future round, you'll send it home.
Please remember to put your user name and the swap name on each card you send out.
